PC Mody Replaces Ramacharyulu As Rajya Sabha Secretary General

by Dikhyaa Mohanty

PC Mody, former chairman of the Central Board of Direct Taxes, has replaced him as secretary-general of the Upper House. Mody’s appointment marks a rare occasion of an Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer becoming Rajya Sabha’s secretary-general. The position has traditionally been reserved for Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers or senior parliament secretariat officers.

According to the reports, Former Uttarakhand cadre IAS officer Utpal Kumar Singh is the current Lok Sabha secretary-general.  PC Mody, former chairman of the CBDT, will be the new secretary-general of Rajya Sabha. Rajya Sabha chairman M Venkaiah Naidu, the appointing authority, signed the order of appointment to this effect.

In a tweet, senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh quoted- “Not surprised at all. Dr PPK Ramacharyulu is a thorough professional, non-partisan and perfectly qualified for the post—three deadly sins in the Modi regime.”
